  1. Some years ago I bought A.I. OST directly from Amazon, not from one of the retailers, and they sent me a fake CD-R with photocopied color covers. I contacted them and they sent a replacement, which was a second pirated CD. They refunded the money, and I still have those two fakes.

    Kanjiklub wants their investment back.
  3. The Rogue One Sequel Speculation Thread

    I think I read somewhere that they will keep this Emperor unshown until maybe the sequel of this future film! I just hope extensive use of those brilliant Giacchino fanfares. That Rogue One title card in particular. It will be hard for Williams to follow the steps of this instant classic.
  4. Not the last one. I ordered right away within the first 10 minutes, and still no trace of the package. Tracking is still stuck on December 3rd.
  5. I don't know what level of importance will have the villain played by Benicio del Toro. If he's preponderant in the film, maybe Williams' thematic forces will go to that character, and not Kylo Ren or Snoke. I hope is not the case, though.
  6. Missed it too! I hope it becomes available again.
  7. Yes, he does quote it. Not being familiar with Giachinno's output at all (except, perhaps, Up?), I tried to like the score. I think it has some decently crafted moments that work on the film, and an overall Star Wars bag of resources, but my impression is this was done in a rush, and overusing many devices. The most noticeable being the brass triplets, that in the movie are mixed very loud and bombastic each time, which got me tired very quick. Emotional scenes, with the exception of one in particular, sounded far too simple to be believable in a Star Wars context, with basic harmonies and little melodic and orchestration value. Chirrut Imwe's theme sounded too much like the begining of Across the Stars not to be bothered by it. I can remember even a similar orchestration for the first time it appears. Still is not so bad, and works, so I think I'll get accostumed to it in the future.
  8. Mine shipped, but after checking in multiple tracking websites, they all indicate it's in Los Angeles, and still not "out for delivery". It's really frustrating. ¡Que bueno saber que somos coterráneos!
  9. Mine shipped last week, but it's still stuck in Los Angeles. I don't really know how long before it gets to Chile.
  10. I still have no shipping confirmation for my order 121655 I'm starting to accept it will not be here for Christmas, but some hope remain.
  11. The Best Thread Ever!

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Michael. An uncompressed file would be really valuable!
  12. I will buy directly from La-La Land records, and optimize the shipping cost by ordering also Empire of the Sun. Going directly to bankruptcy, but with an excellent score to lead the way!
